Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141, Linnaeus Way, ANU
Human society's dependence on coal is fraught with controversy in the twenty-first century.

"Finnegans Wake" as Thought with the mouth
Thursday, 23 October 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Milgate Room, A D Hope Building #14, Ellery Crescent, ANU
In 2010, Houyhnhnm Press published a new edition of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, featuring over 9,000 emendations, some fourteen per page. Prior to then-though known to be badly in need of repair since the 1950s-the Wake had never even been typographically reset. Realising that any challenge to 'the iconic status' of the 1939 text would occasion resistance, editors John O'Hanlon and Danis Rose secured an 'Afterword' from Hans Walter Gabler, chief editor of the initially controversial, now highly regarded Ulysses: The Corrected Text (1984).
A 'Circular Conundrum': 150 years of complexity and cropping attempts in North West Australia
Thursday, 23 October 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141, Linnaeus Way, ANU
With the increasing clamour for national development and food production there is a revival in public discussion of the great 'untapped' agricultural potential of northern Australia. Yet despite governments investing millions of dollars supporting cropping development the huge region has countered the international trend of agricultural intensification. Over the last one hundred and fifty years failed attempts have accumulated with ambitious Texan entrepreneurs losing millions of dollars and Indigenous Australians being further marginalised.
Myth and market: Politics of cultural heritage in China
Thursday, 23 October 2014 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Seminar Room, China in the World Building (188), Fellows Lane, ANU
Since the UNESCO World Heritage Convention was ratified by China in 1985, the country has had forty-seven of its national sites inscribed as World Heritage. The ratification of the World Heritage Convention expresses the country's efforts to embrace globalization, build up its national identity, and pursue economic development through revitalizing cultural traditions, and promoting heritage tourism. Heritage policies and practices in China are embedded in the context of the authoritarian market economy with global aspiration from UNESCO.

Thursday, 23 October 2014 at 5:45 PM - 7:00 PM
Weston Theatre, Crawford Building #132, 1 Lennox Crossing, ANU

Seventeenth Geoffrey Sawer Lecture 2014
Thursday, 23 October 2014 at 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Auditorium, Australian Centre on China in the World, Building 188, Fellows Lane, The Australian National University
Geoffrey Sawer was the first Professor of Law at the Australian National University, appointed in 1950 at the age of 40. His fluid and incisive writing, especially on Australian constitutional law and politics, has had a significant impact on succeeding generations of academics, practitioners and judges. In 1998, two years after Sawer's death in 1996, in honour of this pioneering scholar, the Dean of the ANU College of Law, Michael Coper, with then Centre for International and Public Law Director Hilary Charlesworth, inaugurated the annual Sawer Lecture. Since then, the annual lecture has been delivered by such luminaries as Sir Ninian Stephen, Sir Gerard Brennan, and Professor Leslie Zines. This year's lecture is titled: How Natural is Justice? An Ombudsman's Perspective
